CLARIFICATION REQUEST. The University reserves the right to issue a Clarification Request to a Respondent to clarify its proposal if the University determines the proposal is not clear.

Disqualify a Respondent for failure to follow these instructions. b. Discontinue the RFP process at any time for any or no reason. The issuance of an RFP, your preparation and submission of a proposal, and the University’s subsequent receipt and evaluation of your proposal does not commit the University to award a contract to you or anyone, even if all the requirements in the RFP are met. c. Consider late proposals if: (i) no other proposals are received; (ii) no complete proposals are received; (iii) the University received complete proposals, but the proposals did not meet mandatory minimum requirements or technical criteria; or (iv) the award process fails to result in an award. d. Consider an otherwise disqualified proposal, if no other proposals are received. e. Disqualify a proposal based on: (i) information provided by the Respondent in response to this RFP; or (ii) if it is determined that a Respondent purposely or willfully submitted false or misleading information in response to the RFP. f. Consider prior performance with the University in making its award decision. g. Consider total-cost-of-ownership factors (e.g., transition and training costs) when evaluating proposal pricing and in the final award. h.

Require all Respondents to participate in a Best and Final Offer round of the RFP. j. Enter into negotiations with one or more Respondents on price, terms, technical requirements, or other deliverables. k. Award multiple, optional-use contracts, or award by type of service or good. l.

The contract will be awarded to the responsive and responsible Respondent who offers the best value to the University, as determined by the University. Best value will be determined by the Respondent meeting the minimum requirements and offering the best combination of the factors in Section 7, Evaluation Process, and price, as demonstrated by the proposal. The University will email a Notice of Award to all Respondents. A Notice of Award does not constitute a contract, as the parties must reach final agreement on a signed contract before any services can be provided. 12. GENERAL CONDITIONS. The University will not be liable for any costs, expenses, or damages incurred by a Respondent participating in this solicitation. The Respondent agrees that its proposal will be considered an offer to do business with the University in accordance with its proposal, including the Master Service Agreement, and that its proposal will be irrevocable and binding for a period of 180 calendar days from date of submission. If a contract is awarded to the Respondent, the University may, at its option, incorporate any part of the Respondent’s proposal into the contract. This RFP is not an offer to enter into a contract.

SUBCONTRACTORS 5.1 Supplier will not, without the prior written approval of MSU, which consent may be given or withheld in MSU’s sole discretion, engage any third party to perform Services.

Any persons employed by Supplier in connection with the performance of the Services shall be Supplier’s employees and Supplier shall be fully responsible for them. 8. CONFIDENTIALITY 8.1 Meaning of Confidential Information. The term “Confidential Information” means all information and documentation of a party that: (a) has been marked “confidential” or with words of similar meaning, at the time of disclosure by such party; (b) if disclosed orally or not marked “confidential” or with words of similar meaning, was subsequently summarized in writing by the disclosing party and marked “confidential” or with words of similar meaning; or, (c) should reasonably be recognized as confidential information of the disclosing party. The term “Confidential Information” does not include any information or documentation that was or is: (a) in the possession of MSU and subject to disclosure under the Michigan Freedom of Information Act (FOIA); (b) already in the possession of the receiving party without an obligation of confidentiality; (c) developed independently by the receiving party, as demonstrated by the receiving party, without violating the disclosing party’s proprietary rights; (d) obtained from a source other than the disclosing party without an obligation of confidentiality; or, (e) publicly available when received, or thereafter became publicly available (other than through any unauthorized disclosure by, through, or on behalf of, the receiving party). Notwithstanding the above, in all cases and for all matters, MSU Data is deemed to be Confidential Information. 40FOR07 | Release date: 04/14/22 | This document is uncontrolled when printed or saved. | Page 12 of 56 8.2 Obligation of Confidentiality. The parties agree to hold all Confidential Information in strict confidence and not to copy, reproduce, sell, transfer, or otherwise dispose of, give or disclose such Confidential Information to third parties other than employees, agents, or subcontractors of a party who have a need to know in connection with this Agreement or to use such Confidential Information for any purposes whatsoever other than the performance of this Agreement. The parties agree to advise and require their respective employees, agents, and subcontractors of their obligations to keep all Confidential Information confidential. Disclosure to the Supplier’s subcontractor is permissible where (a) the disclosure is necessary or otherwise naturally occurs in connection with work that is within the subcontractor's responsibilities; and (b) Supplier obligates the subcontractor in a written contract to maintain MSU’s Confidential Information in confidence. At MSU’s request, any of the Supplier’s representatives may be required to execute a separate agreement to be bound by the provisions of this Section 13.2. 8.3 Cooperation to Prevent Disclosure of Confidential Information. Each party must use its best efforts to assist the other party in identifying and preventing any unauthorized use or disclosure of any Confidential Information. Without limiting the foregoing, each party must advise the other party immediately in the event either party learns or has reason to believe that any person who has had access to Confidential Information has violated or intends to violate the terms of this Agreement. Each party will cooperate with the other party in seeking injunctive or other equitable relief against any such person. 8.4 Remedies for Breach of Obligation of Confidentiality. Each party acknowledges that breach of its obligation of confidentiality may give rise to irreparable injury to the other party, which damage may be inadequately compensable in the form of monetary damages. Accordingly, a party may seek and obtain injunctive relief against the breach or threatened breach of the foregoing undertakings, in addition to any other legal remedies which may be available, to include, in the case of MSU, at the sole election of MSU, the immediate termination, without liability to MSU, of this Agreement. 8.5 Surrender of Confidential Information upon Termination. Upon termination or expiration of this Agreement, each party must, within five (5) Business Days from the date of termination, return to the other party any and all Confidential Information received from the other party, or created or received by a party on behalf of the other party, which are in such party’s possession, custody, or control. If Supplier or MSU determine that the return of any Confidential Information is not feasible, such party must destroy the Confidential Information and certify the same in writing within five (5) Business Days from the date of termination to the other party. 9. AUDIT AND RETENTION OF BOOKS AND RECORDS University shall have access to and the right to examine and copy any directly pertinent books, documents, papers, and records of Supplier involving transactions related to this Agreement until the expiration of three (3) years after final payment hereunder. Supplier further agrees to promptly furnish, when requested by University, such books, documents, and records of Supplier as are necessary to verify the accuracy of the amounts invoiced to University against any past or current goods and services provided by Supplier. If any audit discloses an overpayment by University or a discrepancy in the amount invoiced by Supplier against 40FOR07 | Release date: 04/14/22 | This document is uncontrolled when printed or saved. | Page 13 of 56 the goods and services actually provided by Supplier, Supplier will promptly reimburse University within thirty (30) days of University’s notification to Supplier of any such overpayment, rectify such discrepancy, or both, and further pay University a fee equal to 25% of the amount of any overpayment. 10.
